Why should you do a seasonal detox?
Detoxifying and rejuvenating the body can happen at any point in time and is an essential first step to achieving your overall better health. You will certainly get more out of the program if you take the time to read over the materials provided and take time to discover more about your body and life but eating one thing that’s fresh is always a great first step! It doesn’t mean starving yourself or depriving yourself of anything – it’s about finding those taste buds and giving your body what it needs!
Benefits of a Detox Program:
Bolster your immune system to help prevent the flu
Boost your mood, energy, and productivity by clarifying your mind
- Shed excess weight before the holidays
Sometimes the foods we eat cause our bodies to have a reaction that we either notice because of the pain we have digesting foods, headaches, grogginess, irritability, inflammation and obesity and more! Detoxing allows our bodies to get some R&R from every day stresses from some of these foods and might even help us discover what foods cause us pain and discomfort! What you learn during the next few days will help you to make changes that last a lifetime.
Your body has a built in detoxification system that eliminates waste through your colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin (as you’ve probably noticed already!). By doing a seasonal detox, it can help each of those systems to work a little bit better, have more help and be more effective at eliminating what your body doesn’t need.
Where do Toxins Come From?
Toxins come from pollutants in the things we touch, the air we breathe, medications we take, the things we eat, the what we drink. We are exposed to them at work, home, in the car, outside, in the ocean, pool and most other places, we become used to these pollutants and most often don’t notice them or their influence on our bodies. The substances that weaken our bodies ability to take care of themselves and cause the largest need for detoxification include: large amounts of animal proteins, unnatural saturated fats, transfats, caffeine, alcohol, pesticides and more. By taking the time to eat right, exercise and treat our bodies right and well, we can build up our immune system and become less susceptible to these toxins. Doing a concentrated detox will also act as a ‘spring’/’fall’/ ’snowy day’ cleaning that helps our minds to be more clear, our bodies to function better and can even help us to lose weight. ‘Detoxing through the diet is a great way to give your body a break and support its natural self-cleaning system.’
